I am thankful for the opportunities and experiences I’ve had interning for PHL17. Looking back I cannot believe how much I’ve done in just a matter of weeks. I’ve attended company meetings, sales calls with Streams Companies and South Philly Bar & Grill, and I was fortunate enough to attend the Philly Hot List event which is sponsored by PHL17. During the event, the winners of the 2013 Best of Philly were announced and rewarded for their accomplishments.
My favorite part of interning for PHL17 were the sales calls I attended with my co-workers because it gave me one on one time with them. During this time I got to learn more about each of them outside of the office. It gave me the opportunity to build personal relationships that go beyond the internship. My advice to anyone who hasn’t already interned is to create bonds with your co-workers that are not strictly work related. It is more comforting walking into work knowing that your surrounded by people you actually know.
It’s sad to think that my internship eventually has to come to an end. Luckily I’ve built great relationships with everyone and will definitely keep in touch. It’s nice knowing I have a group of people that will look out for me during my job search after graduation in May.
